Strings Lessons At Sessions
Cello Lessons, Viola Lessons, Banjo Lessons, Mandolin Lessons, Ukulele Lessons
The strings-family, including cello, viola, and upright bass, have long been of vital importance to orchestras and chamber music but in recent years, the role of string instruments have played an increasing role in modern music. Sessions has unique programs designed both for the modern and the classical student. Our string-instructors are diverse and experienced in focusing on your unique goals and musical styles, without sacrificing true musical growth.
Along with the “classical” string instruments, Sessions also offers programs programs in alternative string instruments such as the banjo, the mandolin, and the ukulele. Whether your passion is traditional celtic music, bluegrass, or modern folk music, these instruments still play an important role in the musical landscape. Musicians with proficiency in these unique instruments are rare and in high demand.
Whatever your goals are, Sessions Music’s cello, viola, upright bass, mandolin, banjo, and ukulele lessons and programs will help you reach new levels of musicianship.

Sessions Music has three beautiful studios, in Memorial, West University/Bellaire, and Sugar Land. We chose these locations due to the clean, safe and modern environment as well as it being conveniently located and easy to access.
A state-of-the-art studio location to learn, practice and perform music is vital in our educational methodology. The Sessions studios consists of eight private music lesson rooms with Apple computers, instruments, wall-mounted flatscreens, audio recording equipment, video camera, music software and access to the Sessions online software and music library. In addition to the eight private music lesson rooms, we have two large music band rooms where we conduct group and band sessions. Each of the band rooms contains an Apple computer, all instruments, PA system, extra large video screen, audio and video recording equipment and access to the Sessions online software and music library.
To emphasize our focus on student safety, we have installed a modern security camera system with cameras in each room as well as the public areas. These cameras are consistently recording so that should there ever be any concern, we have the ability to go back and review recordings.
Music education has been stuck in the dark ages. Sessions methodology utilizes state-of-the-art technology to improve the educational process, whether the focus is modern or classical. We have gone to great lengths to integrate technology anywhere possible. Our individual lesson rooms or large band rooms feature Apple computers hooked up to wall-mounted, large-screen monitors as well as audio and video recording equipment, security cameras and access to our online software and music library. In addition to all of these features, our students have access to an online portal to communicate with their instructor during the week, share music and resources, and connect with the Sessions community.
Would you practice with a football team for months to not play a game? Or prepare a science fair presentation and not participate in the show? Of course you wouldn’t! At Sessions, we feel music is the same way. Performing is part of the fun! That is why we provide, for all of our students, performance opportunities at Houston area theaters, venues, festivals and businesses. All performance opportunities are optional. Some opportunities are by audition and are fantastic goals for our students to aspire too. We also host, twice a year, a fantastic performance open to all students, regardless of skill or age. This is called Sessions LIVE!
Sessions LIVE is not a recital! It is a place for our students to rock out, have fun, and show off their talents. Twice a year, we host a fun, hip live performance that all of our students can participate in. Participation in this event is free and a benefit of being a Sessions student.
We strive to accommodate the unique needs of our students and their families. While our students have set weekly time slots, reschedules are easy with our friendly staff. With 24 hours notice, any program can be rescheduled at no additional charge. We are currently developing an online scheduling program that will be released in 2015 and free to all students.
We don’t believe in contracts at Sessions and your program can be cancelled at any point with 30-days notice. We do require 30 day notice for the sake of our instructors scheduling.
